Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be teaching Geoscience and Physical Science for the 2023-24 school year.
I am a proud graduate of the Coeur d'Alene School District and have lived most of my life here in Coeur d'Alene. After graduating from the University of Idaho in 2003, I returned to Coeur d'Alene and split my passions for science and the arts through working in veterinary medicine and a portrait photography studio. In 2011, I was able to start my own photography business and was lucky to do that for over ten years. In 2018, I was inspired to return to school and earned my teaching certificate in Secondary Education through Lewis-Clark State College in 2020. I taught 7th grade science for two years, having many opportunities to teach science in creative and fun ways. When the opportunity to teach at Coeur d'Alene High School came, I jumped and am now so happy to be a part of the CHS family. Go Viks!
I am a wife and mother to three mini scientists. We enjoy traveling and exploring the natural world in our spare time. I look forward to sharing my passion for the natural world through the lens of science with all my students. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions at email@example.com.
